In this episode of In Focus, partnered by RedZed, we take a look at the self-employed borrower market and how brokers can help them over the summer period and beyond.

Over the past year, there’s been a groundswell of Australians leaving their PAYG roles to set up their dream businesses – with more expected to do so this year.

Building on the self-employed sector report in the November edition of The Adviser magazine, in this episode of In Focus, partnered by RedZed, we catch up with the lender’s executive general manager of distribution, Chris Calvert, to discuss:

  • How self-employed borrowers fared under the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Why the self-employed will increasingly need to turn to brokers
  • Top tips on writing loans for the self-employed
    And much more!
